Wired Underwire blogger Hugh Hart wrote today about what’s worth watching online. At the top of his list: My Roommate the Cylon.
7 Webotainers Worth Watching
Creative team Space Shank Media drags the lofty Battletar Galactica mythology down to earth, where an apartment full of semi-dim twenty-somethings debate Cylon DNA. Smart editing eliminates the need for stunt people to fall off a three-story balcony.
In the tradition of the Lonely Island.com website, which brought Andy Samberg to the attention of Saturday Night Live, SpaceShank’s web work is getting noticed by people with money. Partner Alec McNayr says “Cylon really opened some doors for us. We’ve been pitching Comedy Central, meeting agents and talking to managers. It seems as though a web series is what a screenplay-in-tote used to be: proof of young, untested talent.”

The first half of shooting completed today for My Roommate the Cylon, a new web comedy series based on the freaky-frakky world of Battlestar Galactica.
We shot in an apartment in Santa Monica, CA, and had all four cast members present for the hilarious hi-jinx. Really funny stuff today. Looking forward to the gag reel almost as much as Episode 1.
We’re on target for our launch date (pun intended) of Feb. 26, barring any Cylon attacks (or just a jittery hard drive).
A week before the Cylon attack on Caprica, the inhabitants of a small apartment received a letter from the Cylons.
(And no, it doesn’t involve any of these people.)
